Breathe, Amanda, Breathe

Yes, school will be back in session tomorrow.

After the arduous week of orientation at Seton Hill University: Griffin Days filled with exciting activities, such as Playfair, a Variety Show, and the World Series, a set of play stations in Sullivan Gym, I am sagging in exhaustion, but strangely, edgy.

This afternoon, Anne Stadler and I also spruced up the Setonian/Eye Contact office. The new carpet, open areas, and much cleaner work spaces, create the welcoming and attractive atmosphere that we hoped to achieve. I can't wait to start the first issue--if anything, we could just sit and admire our handiwork :-D

However, the week had to come to an end. The saddest sensation washed over me today; as I was lugging out my suitcase and duffle to my car, everyone else was lugging in theirs. Commuting really stinks sometimes.

Now, finally back at home, I can reclaim my room that my sister has been inhabiting for five days, and get ready for tomorrow.

I just did some preliminary work with my planner. Keeping my "schedule" (English pronunciation; it always sounds better) is going to be a job in and of its self. I am signed up for 17 credits, but I am doing an 18 credit workload. I know that others are taking on more, but nevertheless, I am still wary. Some things never change.

I guess now my readers from the EL 236 class: Writing for the Web that click on my link will have something new to read. I have never been described as a mentor before--what a heavy title; let's see if I can lighten that up a little this year--not to mention myself. :-)

I have one question with the Writing for the Web class .... who is grandma?

OH MY GOSH!! That is my grandma. I can't believe this :-D. Grandma, if you are reading this--I know you love blogging, but could you refrain from commenting on the class sites with Writing for the Web, Seminar in Thinking and Writing, and American Literature 1800-1915 at the top of the page? They are for students to ask questions about classes. I love you grandma. This has to be THE FUNNIEST THING EVER.

Just for the record, Grandma, I didn't mind at all!

LOL. I think that this thread deserves to be framed somewhere... for all the blogging grandma's out there. Woot!
